Yes, little Bundle has a new hair-do. But it could have been so much worse. I mean, when Bitty did it, she skipped the scissors and went right for a razor which she dragged up the back of her head leaving a nice smooth bald patch but miraculously no blood. It looked pretty weird for while. Bundle could have done the thing where she hacked her bangs off to mere stubble but instead she just took a nice big hunk off by each side of her face. A bob it is then! Okay, there is one little spot where she got pretty darn close to her head and thus is currently sporting one sideburn-looking thing, but thanks to her curly fluffy hair you can't really tell.
The real stroke of luck was that after school today I just happened to be babysitting the son of my dear friend who does hair. I called her up and requested that she bring her fancy scissors with her when she came to get her boy and she gave us the best 10 minute kitchen hair cut I have ever seen. Admittedly, part of me has been a little sad all day long knowing that Bundle's long curls were going to go away for a while. But as soon as Jeannie was done....I fell in LOVE with Bundle in a bob. It is SO cute and she wasn't sad at all! Well, I guess she shed a few tears at my friend's house just as her adventure was discovered, but since then she has been thrilled with the results, both her own and Jeannie's! We have had a talk about letting Jeannie do all the cutting from now on, and I certainly hope that sinks in because as much as I love her new little 'do, I sure don't want to see it get any shorter.
I have to post this one little picture off of my phone - it was just three days ago that Bundle had dance class and had her hair all up in a little ballet bun. As we were leaving to go to pick up kids from school she requested the use of a scarf to go with her new little teal pea coat. (Bundle thinks the name pea coat is hilarious, by the way. Wonder if you can guess why.) So I wrapped my smallest scarf around her neck and tucked it into her coat and...well, the result was....oh, I am going to miss her ballet bun.
